Bantha Poodoo: The Eight Worst Retro Star Wars Games

Michael Crisman writes, "It’s been ten years since the theatrical release of “Revenge of the Sith” (somebody call Fox Mulder, where the hell did that decade go?) and once again the Star Wars machine is making the jump to light speed. The license has been around pretty much since the dawn of the home console. MobyGames pegs the total number of games based on the property at 165 as of the time of this writing, starting with The Empire Strikes Back for the Atari 2600 all the way back in 1982. Dozens of these titles have gone on to achieve critical acclaim, paving the way for new story lines, heroes, and villains that have today become staples of the Expanded Universe, or changing the way we think about that universe in general: Lawrence Holland’s popular X-Wing brought flight simulator space combat to the masses, Bioware brought the full role-playing experience home with Knights of the Old Republic, Pandemic put gamers in the shoes of the rank-and-file troopers who fought the deadliest campaigns of both the Clone Wars and the Rebellion with Battlefront, and Traveller’s Tales gave fans of all ages something to enjoy with their Lego treatment of the saga. Star Wars has provided some of the most enjoyable screen time of any licensed property, but it has not been without cost. For every truly memorable, genre-defining, outstandingly playable game set in that galaxy far, far away, there are dozens which failed to break the mold of ‘average’, and some which failed so spectacularly you could argue they were designed to draw players to the Dark Side."
